The practice of making movies on real-life stories is fast catching up in Bollywood. Devaki, directed by Bappaditya Bandopadhyay, is one such film. Although the story of a woman who was auctioned moves the viewer no end, the film tends to get too depressing and doesn't really offer any solutions. And that's a major limitation!

Devaki [Suman Ranganathan] is forced into marriage to a 70-year-old man. On the night of the marriage, she is raped by the brother of the impotent old man in order to establish the age-old practice of physical dominance of the male over the female. In protest to the feudal practices, Nandini [Perizaad Zorabian], the urban girl, who has come to the village to work as the NGO activist, quits her job and comes back to the city.
